Newcomer Summer Walker cancels her US tour due to social anxiety

American singer Summer Walker is cancelling more than half of her remaining US tour dates because of social anxiety.

She’s announced she will only play nine cities of the 29 that were originally scheduled. “I’m not going to be able to finish this tour because it doesn’t really coexist with my social anxiety and my introverted personality,” Summer said on Instagram.

“I’m a person, I have feelings. I get tired, I get sad and it’s just a lot.”

She added: “I want to give you all that I can, so I’m going to keep making music and I might do a few shows, but I can’t finish.”

The singer has performed live shows and festivals in 2019 and says she hopes people “understand and respect” her decision to cancel her remaining tour dates.

She says she wants to continue being “healthy” and told fans that tickets would be refunded. “I hope that you understand that wellness/mental health is important.”

social anxiety disorder is defined as a “long-lasting and overwhelming fear of social situations”.

Summer’s tour announcement comes a few days after she addressed criticism for her meet-and-greets while she has been touring.

Some fans complained she wasn’t as affectionate as they’d like. “For those who’re upset [because], I don’t give hugs… I’m an empath and that transference of energy from that many people each day would literally KILL me,” she said.
